4 Maccabees 17:7-9 Common English Bible (CEB)

If we had the skill of an artist to paint a picture showing the story of your commitment to God, wouldn’t those who viewed the painting tremble to see a mother enduring the experience of seven children being tortured to death in so many ways?

The martyrs’ achievements

What would be an appropriate message that could be carved on their tomb to remind our nation’s people? Perhaps these words:

here lie buried an old priest, an old woman, and seven children because of the violence of a tyrant who wished to destroy the hebrew way of life.
